Charity Drive Update

I belong to the Etsy Bookbinder's Street Team (BEST), and we're in the middle of a nine-week charity drive. We're donating some of our handmade books, and 100% of the profits (minus shipping and Paypal fees) from the sales of the books will be donated to H.E.L.P. International.

H.E.L.P. International is a registered charity dedicated to providing health care and education for children throughout the world who are orphaned, destitute or disabled.

Here is the book I'm donating. I used handmade banana bark and Korean papers for the covers. It has 80 lb Teton paper inside, good for writing, sketching and light wash watercolour. If you'd like to know more about this book, you can see it here in my Etsy store. You can also find more lovely donated books, on the BEST blog at http://etsybooks.blogspot.com/2008/02/test_17.html

Hope you can help us help H.E.L.P. International!
